Kubota North

Now is the time to plan for winter equipment service needs

Winter is coming. It may be a cliché, but it’s also an inevitability, even if we don’t like to think about it. The team at Kubota North is looking ahead and offers this sound advice: this year, more than ever, you need to be ready.

Whether it’s bringing in your equipment to be serviced or making sure you’re well stocked with items such as filters and lights, now is the time to act, says Dave Jackson, president of Kubota North.

“With low stock at the manufacturer and shipping delays, everyone should plan accordingly,” he advises. “Be sure to pick-up a few extra belts and blades, and the engine oil or hydraulic oil filters which could need replacing in what’s looking like a long winter.”

Kubota North is a Gravenhurst-based, family-owned business that is operated by Dave and Laura, his wife, along with their son Brett, who is the vice-president. General manager Pam Medland joined Kubota North in 2018, which now has 25 employees and counting.

Over the years, Kubota North has built a reputation for providing both quality equipment and great service to professionals and do-it-yourself clients. They build long-lasting relationships with their clients and it’s one of the reasons they’ve built a strong loyal following in the community.

“We won’t just sell you the equipment you need,” says Brett. “We’ll be there to keep it running and be with you throughout the life of your Kubota.”

Designed and manufactured in Japan, Kubota’s reputation in Canada is second to none. They have a broad range of tractors, mowers, loaders, excavators, UTVs, side-by-sides, and more.

Top-of-the-line equipment requires the service to match, explains Dave. It’s why Kubota North ensures they have an on-site crew of Kubota-trained, certified and insured mechanics and plans to continue expanding, with six new service bays in the works.

This will be the second increase in service and maintenance in less than five years: bigger and more efficient service bays were added in 2018.

That was one of the several additions through the years since moving to their 11-acre property on Winhara Road in 2014, which is easily recognized by the large logoed silo. Increases in office retail space and storage (including a 16,000 square foot dome) have also been made.

They also have multiple on-road service trucks and transports available for pick-ups and drop-offs to better care for their customer’s needs.

“We’ll make sure you have quality equipment,” says Dave. “And provide the service needed to keep it in the best possible condition, so you can focus on getting the work done.”

Demand still high, but buyers taking their time

The real estate market is normalizing, and despite what some panicky naysayers may think, the idea that cottage prices will be plummeting is farfetched.

Tried and true collection makes an architectural statement

Revamping your style isn’t always about looking forward. Sometimes, it’s a matter of reaching into the past. After all, as the saying goes, “the
